Summary
Since all of the men are off to war, the Vicar eliminates the church choir. When Miss Prim, a music professor, arrives in Chilbury, she insists the choir can be resurrected as a ladies’ choir. The choir lifts the spirit of participants and congregations/audiences. The story is told through diary entries by 13-year-old Kitty, her older sister Venetia, widowed Mrs. Tilling and midwife Edwina Paltry.
Critique
Lots of things happen in Chilbury including bombings, baby-swapping, love affairs and undercover operations. An entertaining story.
